Creative has added another set of headphones to its list of Aurvana collection –The Creative Aurvana Live 2.


This headphone has a completely new enclosure, with a similar 40mm bio-cellulose foster driver like its predecessor launched last year. The design is much better in a lot of ways, redesigned to cater for the higher end crowd. It comes in black and red colours.


The second version of Aurvana is strong with the adjustable headband snapping better. The ear cups can be turned in any direction thereby making it easier to clean the earpads. The earpads are circular, slightly bigger with a width of 5.5 cm. While the size might make you feel uncomfortable the slightly thicker build with wider pads make it easy going on the ears. It is still quite portable and easy to drive too. Like its predecessor, it also comes with a soft pouch.

Sound Quality:

This headphone concentrates on giving top notch bass quality. The bass is deeper, tight and punchy. Creative has taken special care to ensure the vocals don’t get dominated out by the bass or treble. With bass-heavy music, it sounds as if you are amidst high volume speakers.

The sound quality is uncompromising due to the use of 40mm Neodymium drivers with bio cellulose diaphragms made out of a compressed natural fibre material that combines the tonal qualities of traditional paper cones with the power of a metal cone.

The headset is meant to be comfortable even with long hours of use, with memory foam ear cup cushions finished in a “premium protein faux leather” material.

 The headset contains a detachable 1.2m-long audio cable with a gold-plated standard 3.5mm jack and an inline remote and volume control that is compatible with Smartphone, tablets and PCs.
The treble is excellent making it a great accessory for gaming or movies. For gaming, while we would need an open bass-light headphone instead, for gaming of pure immersion experience, this has the fun factor to bring it all out. The same goes for movies. Dialogue isn’t a problem. Cinematic effects are fantastic.


Creative Aurvana Live! 2 is the successor to the well-received Aurvana Live Headset. It is priced at Rs. 12,999 in India and is available in either black and chrome or black, red and chrome and is certainly a good option if you want nice headphones around this price range.
